Problem with neighbours - parking

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Ok, need bit of legal/information,

our house is situated funny, next doors gate is directly to ours and theres a wall eitherside. I park infront of my gate and wall with my bike, they park there car infront of hers, i leave 2/3feet space,

3times in a row they've moved my bike without asking me, I went round asked her nicely to stop moving it and the women (its her son in laws car) was bitchy telling me that "why should they have to manuvre around myself" Now she had plenty of rooms, she continued to insult me and I though ok, I'll contact the police, she says when I do she'll tell them to get me done with obstruction to parking, HOW, i park in front of MY gate/wall and leave plenty of rooms

I've contacted to police, Will put alock on my bike (around the wheel) if they move it, they'll damage it. but can she really get me done?

any advice\would be nice, as far as I am concerned them moving my bike without concent is the legal problem here.

    If you're not blocking access to her property like you say you aren't then i fail to see how she thinks she can get you done.

    Even if you were blocking her gate, if her car is on the drive then there is no case to answer, its only if you're blocking their access to getting in to their property (on their drive) then you are causing an obstruction. If you're stopping them getting out bizarrely it's not.

    eta: Under English law that is, i'm guessing you're under Scottish law, and as such i don't know if things are slightly different, sorry.

    What have you actually done wrong? I really don't see how you've done anything wrong here.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I haven't, they have by moving my bike 3times.

    It's illegal to park over a drive WITH a dropped kerb if there is a vehicle on the drive, but from the sounds of it you're not doing this and she's being a cunt.

    If she touches your bike again, call the police and have her done. It's not too much to ask, if your bike was in the way, to knock the door and ask you to move it.

    there IS no drive, we have no drives at the front they're round the rear, its basicly

    Wall - Her gate - My gate - Wall

    she parks hers in front of her wall, i park mine in front of my gate/my wall (she has problem with that)

    Rubberskin, I called the police today they should be popping round tonight i hope

    Hm she sounds a bit mad, surely its not inconveniencing her if its in front of your gate?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Seems a shame to have to call the police out for your neighbours. So I guess they won't be getting invited round for tea and biscuits anymore!

    If you've got a gate, why not just wheel the bike in anyway? Stops it getting nicked too :)

    because it's up steps shyboy so its to much inconviences,

    Police actually came to my work to speak to me (although i asked them not to but my boss didn't mind)

    If im not in front of her gate, there is nothing they can do about it. them moving my bike is actually a form of threft according to the officer, I said I didn't want to press charges unless they keep it up

    According to my local council there isn't. We always have people parking across our drive way - even when the bike & car are in there and no-one will do anything about it.

    It seems to me like you're parking no where near her and she's just being stupid really.

    why is she moving it and where is she moving it to?

    She moves it back oh and i believe i may have found damage to the bike.

    shes not moving her son in law is

    I honestly don't see what you've done wrong. If she's done damage, then report her for it.

    lovely little house by the way
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    He came around and threatened us, saying he'd have no problem disposing of the bike.

    police are just been, having a word with him now.

    There isn't what ?

    I know i'm right, well the copper who told me that i would assume was right.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Sorry, used wrong words. You said that it's illegal for someone to park across someone's drive way. According to my council, it's perfectly legal. :rolleyes:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    oooh what a lovely little house :heart:

    I assumed you meant pushbike originally and thought i wouldnt mind if someone moved it slightly out of the way if it was mine, but i definitely would be pissed off if someone moved my scooter, esecially since they dont even need to.
    If it was in their way, why wouldnt they knock and ask if you minded moving it?

    Glad youre getting it sorted out.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Ok, the police returned etc,

    He's been warned about the threatening, and warned about moving my bike, He cannot approch us, enter my property of touch my bike, if he does they'll arrest him.

    They did tell me "if" my bike was obstructing there gate it may be told but as he wasn't conserned as far as he could see my bike is fine (both officers said so)

    alls well :D
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru

    oh no, can you see the vomit on my shoulder from all the way over there?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    It's one thing knowing that Balamory exists, but another to know the character names :D

    I've managed to avoid that for a few years, but I have a feeling that me and the Tweenies are going to be good friends again :(
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I know all the songs too, and I havent even watched it in about 2 years .

    Its pretty bad I know
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
